I loved this book. Loved its quirkiness, irreverent humor, the prologed suspense and the meticulously detailed descriptions. I think it is truly original. And I loved the timing. Like working my way through the squash casserole in anticipation of the key lime pie, I waded slowly but joyfully through each paragraph. I couldn't put it down.

Jesse Kellerman is a better writer than his dad (Jonathan,) but doesn't have his dad's gift for fast-pacing. He's as good a writer as his mom (Faye), maybe better, and certainly with a wider lens and fresher outlook.
I really liked this story, which is a mystery that I couldn't guess my way through. It constantly surprised me. The characters are deep, and the diverse cultural understandings rich. I love the main character, a woman with a blighted life who keeps on keeping on. Everyone around her also well realized.
Really good narrator.
